in the middle of the sewing...

i won't lie, my classes are freaking cool, although i've got to say that i may probably annoy my teacher, i just ask and ask and ask and seems like all my classmates are very confident or they have more practice than me... i put all the kind of notes and memos and tips and things in order to not forget or mess my pieces...
What i did was recycling a few t-shirts for thongs and briefs and well, some of them didn't end pretty well, i have some mistakes that totally makes me feel so frustrated, and after managing how to cut the fabric and see the pattern and making a full exploration on my undies's drawer i realize how to make them and also that i need to see example (pfff and i thought that was going to be like a puzzle...!)
How this things end it up?, well, i've got 6 pieces of undies (brief, thongs and boxers), still freaking out on "how the hell i'm gonna do the babydoll" and daring myself to do the robes, pijama and night gown.... 

This is like i always do, first comes with excitement, then with confusion and frustration, then with the pressure and at the end with the "oh! i've got that"... (the pics with the gorgeous fabrics are beyond of my range! they are specially made for other occasions, although i drool all over them...)

a way to help...

i was really thinking to make a post about how to help my country (if you are foreign or if you live here too)... is almost a week since the earthquake happen, the hard labour of rescuers are still on, and all the people, citizens from all around the world are helping, all lives are precious, even pets!
Here in my town in the red cross are still collecting goodies to help all the people and states affected by the earthquake, is like we are fixing what the government should do (and are not doing...), so like Lennon would say: power to the people ✌...!

say a little pray for us...


I barely had a memory of the 1985 earthquake, i should had 3 years old or so... my mom run to the street with my siblings and i and then... 32 years later, same day, is just the same story... i can't hold myself, i saw videos and photos and is hard not to cry when i see people helping to rescue kids and helping each other and see all the buildings collapsed... i still have faith in human kind! i do believe that people are kind and generous,  i do!
If you can help my country and my people please do it! UNICEF and the International Red Cross are supporting with food, medicine and else...
The Topos Tlatelolco is a non profit organization, i already made my donation and i'll support all the rescuers and do my part to help people recover...
I pray for us and i pray for you too..

i'm getting ready...


This week was scheduled for test my workshop... yup i was so nervous about that! not because i'm gonna be in front of 30 kids but because i've got viewers, or should i say critics... and darn! that's the reason that makes me freak out! they will put numbers and reviews and ...!! aaghhhh!!! ....
I need to explain this better... in December, there's one of the most important book fairs (worldwide!, apparently the 2nd most important!...), i work in the children area and this will be my 5th time in row, with workshops that, of course, involves book but art, creativity, imagination and two years ago i beg, and i beg to had Sherlock Holmes workshop (it was so fun! i adore it although i lose my voice tho..) so this year, it totally involves art, illustration and narrative skills, if don't, well that's the idea, the kiddos will learn..
So well, i've got a friend (a partner in crime..) who is helping me to make this workshop go on but also to team up and had fun with kiddos... how ended up my workshop test? i really know a few things, just some adjustments here and there but... this ship is sailing guys!!!

first day in the classroom...


Oh dear! i stared to take some sewing classes... actually i have to make poker face because the teacher asked if someone didn't know different types of seams or make patterns from scratch and well... i just know a few things but the other sewing classes are kinda out of my schedule soooo here i go, on my sewing classes learning how to make lingerie and else... i'm super excited! and of course, the course is full of girls and ladies, like not man allowed, but seems like everybody can be pretty cool and also the teacher... just in case that i don't know something for sure i'll ask and lucky me, i've got my sewing machine at home...
i'll cross my fingers to make myself some undies (do not expect pics of me modeling..) but i'll keep you updated with my progress or my complains...

but a solo...


I read a quote that makes me think a lot (or may probably is because i felt it so identify with it...) "Artist are people driven by tension between the desire to communicate and the desire to hide" D.W. Winnicott.... and yes! is so true! or at least is how i feel, to be true, i don't have any individual art exhibition, just to think on it, seriously put me so nervous! in some way is not only my ideas but also my feelings, thoughts, is like been naked in front of people!... i guess is just matter of time and maybe because the first time, and then, the next exhibitions will be so simple and will flow so easily...
I've been working on a couple of paintings but i asked myself that it should be time to make a solo... (get me a Chewie! ;) )

A plant for the future

I've got this idea, that i'm not really really a great plant lady for the reason that most of my plants die because, well, i don't know but is funny, i can make them grow from seeds!
This little baby tree is one of my fav trees in town, i just found out that is a singer tree, i know, sounds funny but when the tree starts to bloom and when is full of it's fruits you can hear him sing, is so full of singing birds! i was so stunning when i saw it! i saw woodpeckers, parrots, mockingbirds, canaries and other birds..
Soon, i do really hope to plant it and so the people can hear it singing like i did...
